Canote E-Notes 12/27/13

We have arrived in Del Rio, TX safe and sound.  Praise the Lord! 

We survived a HUGE supply run at the Sam's Club in Abilene, TX this morning.

Tomorrow (Saturday) includes a long day of at least two trips across the border with supplies, a final WalMart run, and some base camp set up.

Thank you for your prayers for us and our ministry teams this week! We have some on our host team who have been battling nasty colds:  Chewy, Nicky Blue Eyes, and Tori.  Our ministry teams will be traveling Saturday and Sunday to arrive at camp Sunday evening.

We're counting on your prayer support and trusting in God this week!  We're also believing many in Acuña, Mexico will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus as a result of this significant Kingdom building ministry.

Canote E-Notes 12/16/13

On the road again!

Wow!  What a grand adventure it is to chase hard after God, trusting in His big ole plan!  We are so very blessed and honored to serve Him in the many ministry opportunities He places before us.  

It's time once again to head south of the border for a Team Ministry Outreach in Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.  Our Canote family host team of 14, including a couple of extra volunteers, will be leaving Casa Canote for this trip at noon on Christmas Day.  Our ministry teams will be working Mon-Fri, Dec. 30-Jan. 3.  We'll be back Sunday, Jan. 5.

Chewy's girlfriend, Kaleigh Monnig and Alex's girlfriend Kelly Mckernan will both be travelling and serving with us in Mexico for their first time on the mission field.  Naturally, they are both pretty excited about getting to be part of this significant Kingdom ministry. And, of course, we always love dragging our friends down to Mexico with us!

There will be a total of 70 of us including our family, volunteer staff, and the ministry teams.  We have a team of 46 from Cornerstone UMC in Caledonia, Michigan and a local Missouri team of 10 from Perche Baptist Church.

As always, it's a long trip with so many logistics which need to come together.  Satan is already tossing fiery darts our way but that's nothing new.  It's all good because God is on our side AND that's how we know He has big plans for this ministry!

Please keep us and our ministry teams in your prayers.  We are so thankful for that and rely on it.  Your role as support and prayer team is critical and significant!  Thank you and God bless you!

We'll be looking forward to telling the story of how God showed up big to work in and through us to accomplish much as we take the greatest story ever told to the people of Ciudad Acuña, Mexico!
